One of the newer ships in APT's European fleet, AmaCerto debuted in 2012 with an emphasis on passenger comfort and indulgence.
Most staterooms benefit from having twin balconies: a French verandah with floor-to-ceiling windows that open wide and a true balcony with comfy chairs to sit in and enjoy the passing view. Up on deck, a splash pool with swim-up bar and ample sun loungers will please discerning cruisers.
For Australian and New Zealand passengers, AmaCerto is operated by APT, in partnership with AmaWaterways. APT passengers enjoy the benefit of inclusive fares, which cover tips, porterage and transfers. Most drinks are included as part of APT's complimentary open bar policy.
APT Royal Collection itineraries in Europe also include the services of an onboard tour/cruise director, as well as bespoke sightseeing experiences. (Think an exclusive tour of Vienna's City Palace or a guided exploration of Germany's Namedy Castle.) Freedom of Choice tour options give travellers the flexibility to tailor their holidays to their own tastes and schedules.
Upgrading to certain suite categories with APT brings the added benefits of room service dining, butler service, garment pressing and pre-dinner canapes each evening.

The 164-passenger AmaReina, which sails for Australia-based APT, offers a formal dining room and a casual all-day eatery, double-balcony cabins and a range of tour options.
APT's AmaLyra launched in 2009, joining nearly identical sister ships AmaDolce (2009), AmaCello (2008), AmaDante (2008), AmaLegro (2007) and AmaDagio (2006). The ship cruises along Europe's great inland waterways, including the Rhine, Mosel, Main and Danube.
APT co-owns AmaWaterways, a leading river cruise operator in Europe, and both companies operate the AmaBella. In Australia and New Zealand, the cruises are sold under the APT brand, with unique itineraries and inclusions.
Debuted in 2008, AmaCello features many of the modern conveniences river cruisers have come to love (and expect): wireless Internet, multifunction Web/TV systems, comfy sun decks and spacious bathrooms.All cabins have river views, making it a tempting option to simply relax in your room and watch the world glide by.
